Holiday Desserts

Are you looking for a delicious dessert to put on your table? During the holiday season, many families like to gather for a reunion. Most of the time, the host offers delicious desserts after the main meal. But, what kind of delicious treats does the host offer?

When it comes to desserts, cake truffles are a must-try. What’s a better snack than a bite-sized treat? To make this delicious cake, you’ll need white cake mix, all-purpose flour, granulated sugar, butter, vanilla, milk, chocolate, and sprinkles (optional). First, you’d need two bowls. One for the dry ingredients, and one for the wet. In the dry ingredients bowl. In the dry ingredients bowl, add cake mix, flour, and sugar. Add butter, milk, granulated sugar, vanilla, and sprinkles into your wet bowl. Stir all the ingredients together in both bowls. Then, combine the two mixtures together until moist. Keep the bowl in the refrigerator for 20-30 minutes. While you wait, get ready to melt the chocolate you had prepared. Once the batter is all cooled, scoop it up and roll the balls until it’s round. Poke a stick through the bottom of the ball and dip it in the melted chocolate. Place the truffle on wax paper, put some sprinkles on top, then let it cool. Ta-da! Now you have a delicious and gooey tiny treat.

The next recipe is a classic, sugar cookies! To make the cookie dough, you’ll need 7-8 ingredients. Creamed butter, sugar, egg, vanilla extract, almond extract, flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix all of the ingredients together, then divide it into two pieces. Then, roll it out to ¼ an inch thick using a rolling pin. Once you have the dough all rolled out, let it chill for up to 1-2 hours. After that, bring out the dough and cut the shapes out using a cookie cutter. Place the cookies on a tray with wax paper at the bottom, then cook for about 12-15 minutes. Last but not least, ice the cookies! Making sugar cookies is really simple, you just need the time and effort to create something delicious. 

So, the next time you host a holiday party, make sure to whip up these tasty desserts
